A 22-year-old man has been sentenced to a total of 25 months’ imprisonment in relation to a speeding ticket scam in High Wycombe. The individual concerned was convicted and sentenced at Oxford Crown court on 13 February 2014.
He was charged with four counts of Making False Statements contrary to The Perjury Act 1911 and for Dangerous Driving after being detected speeding on seven separate occasions by police safety cameras in the High Wycombe area.
He pleaded guilty to each count and was sentenced to five months custody for each offence to run concurrently, a total of 25 months and was disqualified from driving for 12 months having to take extended test to obtain a driving licence again.
One of the investigating police officer’s from Banbury police station said:
“He thought he could speed with impunity because the vehicles were not registered to him and then when identified by police made a concerted effort to evade the penalties for speeding…He started a lie, nominating a fictitious person and maintained that lie until the late stages of the Crown Court process…These custodial sentences are a real deterrent to others who insist on trying to evade speeding tickets.”
